The MIT Association of Taiwanese Students and the Boston Intercollegiate Taiwanese Students Association (BITSA) will hold a conference at MIT on Saturday, Nov. 11 to explore issues faced by the Taiwanese-American community. All students are invited to attend.
The third annual BITSA conference aims to educate students about Taiwanese and Taiwanese-American history, culture and society. The keynote speaker will be Leon T. Ku, financial director and corporate treasurer of WaferTech, the US subsidiary of Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co.
An evening performance by New York comic Eliot Chang and a dance party co-sponsored by the MIT Chinese Students Club are among the social activities that will be offered by BITSA, established in 1997 by students from Harvard, MIT and Tufts to serve as a means of communication for Taiwanese and Taiwanese-American students.
Registration and more information on panels and workshops are available on the the conference web site. Preregistration by November 4 is $15; registration at the door is $25.
